Our intern: Chi Yin Li

September 16th, 2015

 Chi Yin Li, Newbury College, Graduate

 

Thoughts on being an intern?

I was so honored to be an intern for TEAL Apparel. I learned a lot in from a short period of time. I never knew how hard it is to own a small online business. You need to use any possible connections to support your own business and put in a lot of time. Owning a small online business is like taking care of a baby. You need to keep an eye on it 24/7. It was a wonderful experience to be TEAL Apparel’s intern and it was an experience that I won’t ever forget.

What did you expect?

I did not know what to expect when I first started the internship.  I thought it would just be sitting behind the computer and doing research about the tall men’s market. It was much more than I thought. Jenni asked me what I wanted to learn and get out from this internship. I told her that I am more of a hands on person. Next day, she changed the entire schedule and let me do more hands on tasks including trips to the factory. I did not expect that she would listen to me because I was just an intern. After that day, I did not feel like an intern anymore. I felt like I was working with her as an employee and she listened to my opinions.

Best part of the internship?

Best part of this internship was the knowledge that I gained from her. It wasn’t just about how to run a small business, but also about everything outside of that. She taught me how to calm myself and write everything down that is in my head. All of the lessons are invaluable.

What surprised you the most?

I was surprised at how much I learned during this short period of time about business and life. I am glad that I had the chance to work with Jenni. She is an awesome person. Thank you very much.

#pantproblems

April 27th, 2015

unibrow blog

 

How did we get here? 

 

Backstory: Wife buys you pants that have the perfect length, but a giant waist.  Ever had an excessively loose pair of pants that needed to be taken in so much that the back welts touched?  Then you know what unibrows are. They are pants and shorts that don’t quite fit right – in fact they’re downright huge and need to be tailored. If it wasn’t for a trusty belt these pants would be cleaning the floor around your ankles.

Tall guys – you all have these pants in your rotation. They are the ones you wear when everything else is dirty. The last resort. The lowest moment in your week, when you wished you had remembered to do laundry so that you wouldn’t have to pay the price.

The unibrow pant problem always reminds me of my husband’s dragon pants. One year I was determined to find my husband a pair of upscale, dark wash jeans. I literally searched the entire city of San Francisco and I couldn’t find a 38×38 jean anywhere. I finally found ONE pair of urban, rapper style jeans at Bloomingdales. They were supposed to be worn super slouchy, off the hips and baggy. Not intended to be worn at the waist with the hem hitting right below the ankle like a regular pair of jeans. No matter, I was determined to make it work.

From the front these jeans were awesome. The leg fit well enough and it was a nice dark wash. The back was a totally different story. Each back pocket had a giant, gold, embroidered crown bearing dragon. Subtle, not so much. Especially since my 6’7 husband’s backside is at everyone else’s eye level! At parties he would wear his “nice” jeans and become the butt of the joke. Literally. Hey man, what’s up with the gold dragons? After one year’s Christmas Party he never wore them again. Moral of the story: Tall guys can’t hide their assets. 

That’s why I launched TEAL Apparel – to stop Unibrows, dragon patches and the walk of shame. I want tall guys to have access to incredible fitting chinos and shorts so that they can do the walk of fame!

Press: XLT Clothing Review

February 23rd, 2015

Thank you XLT Clothing! We appreciate the kind review of our chinos on your blog and social media.

Read the full post below:

40″ Inseams?…Thank you, TEAL Apparel!

 

XLTCLOTHING

 

Beautiful packaging containing bright color pants with whopping 40” inseams!

This must be heaven.

Not only are they sturdily built but the attention to detail is amazing. The stitching, the backing, the color contrasts and comfort! Oh, the comfort. I had to talk to the creator of these awesome pants.

 

XLT 1

Fast-Forward

So, it’s 11:00am (CST). Promptly, I receive a phone call from Jenni Lallier – Co-founder and owner of TEAL Apparel.

Of course, during our exchange of pleasantries, Jenni and I briefly discussed the weather. It was currently 28-degrees in Alabama. In Massachusetts, where Jenni and her husband (of 6 feet 7 inches tall) reside, it was clear that it was much colder, comparatively.

XLT2

Though the climate outside was chilly for the both of us, the conversation flowed freely and brought much warmth and laughter like a cup of hot Cocoa.

Jenni is such a pleasant person.

It was a blessing to converse with someone who understood the world that members of the XLT Community live in.

Not only could Jenni relate – she took action.

After learning more about what XLT |Clothing represented, the questions shifted toward understanding more about what TEAL Apparel exemplified – that of which, Jenni was more than happy to discuss.

XLT 2

XLT: Tell us about your company?

Jenni: TEAL Apparel (http://www.tealapparel.com) offers premium clothing for men 6’.

Our goal is to provide exceptional clothing that fits well, feels great, & is accessible within days that’s also affordable. In 2010, TEAL launched with a single chino and currently offers Thirty-Four (34) different products.

The TEAL brand is fun, optimistic and also a self-deprecating – playing up the inherent dark comedy in being tall. I hope that comes across in our website and social media. I think the site is relatable for tall guys and enlightening for the mass market to understand what tall guys endure!

 

XLT: What differentiates you from Big & Tall or the other Tall products out there?

Jenni: TEAL Apparel is different because we:

  • Are Online, available 365 days, 24/7.
  • Develop clothes that tall men need, which we understand firsthand because we are tall! My husband is 6 feet 7 inches tall with a 38 inch inseam. His clothing needs and tall life style, along with our tall network of friends and customers, drive the ideas behind every item.
  • Design pieces with the tall body frame and height in mind. For example, our slim fit is cut to flatter the leaner Long & Tall guy and also a 40 inch length to cover his socks. Our pocket openings are angled and larger for proportionally larger hands. All designs are created by a Manhattan based designer with years of industry expertise who also designs the Marc by Marc Jacobs men’s line.
  • Make our chinos and shorts from the very best materials in the world. The Italian Cotton Twill is milled in Milan, in one of a kind colors, and our zippers are durable with a fun pop of teal color.
  • Offer our products at an affordable price because we sell directly to the consumer. The cost savings are passed on to our customers who in turn have clothes of higher quality that will endure the test of time.

 

XLT 3

XLT: How was your company birthed/ what are the products that you sell?

Jenni: I launched TEAL Apparel out of frustration and necessity. There were a series of events that led me to that epiphany. The first was trying to find a nice pair of jeans to give my husband for Christmas. The shopping and online searching became a huge project. I couldn’t find anything except a pair of urban/rapper style jeans that were meant to be worn super slouchy and long, but if my 38’ inseam husband wore them properly they were perfect except for the embarrassingly loud, giant gold lion patches on both back pockets.

The second “aha” moment was during a trip to Las Vegas. My husband and I decided to go shopping at the Forum Shops at Caesars. More than 270 stores should yield something for a Long & Tall guy, right? Wrong. There was not one thing we could find that would fit except for a custom shirt that cost 2x retail and would be ready in 4-6 weeks. That night the idea of TEAL Apparel was conceived. My intent was to provide Long & Tall guys with affordable clothes, designed for the tall body type that’s available in days.

We provide premium chinos and shorts. We have 2 collections: Italian and the All-American in 11 colors and 2 different fits. We also offer e-gift certificates; the one size fits every Long & Tall man.

 

XLT: How tall are you? How tall is your husband?

Jenni: I know what some of you may be thinking…what does a 5’9 Asian woman from Hawaii know about Long & Tall guys? To that I say A LOT! During the 13 years that I have been with my husband tall chokepoints have been at every turn. Whether it was testing car after car to be sure the seats moved back to provide enough leg room, to the trunk door that open right to temple hitting level, or the bed that wasn’t long enough for his feet. I’ve also learned and am still learning (from our customers and tall friends) new tall shopping tricks or that tidying up after my husband things means feeling around at the top of all of our shelves. And now that I’ve launched TEAL I am evolving into a height expert, leading the tall charge!

My husband is 6’7, 38” inseam and wears the TEAL Traditional Fit.

 

XLT: What are your current goals and future goals?

Jenni: They’re pretty much the same. I want to develop and source products that tall guys need. Right now we’re working on long sleeve button downs for work, golf shirts for weekend, jeans and undershirts.

I also want to continue to spread the word about TEAL Apparel. We are working on several PR initiatives, sales events and developing a TEAL Advocate program. TEAL Advocates are customers and tall friends who are helping us spread the word about TEAL while accumulating credit towards TEAL clothing.

 

XLT: How did you come in contact with XLT Clothing?

Jenni: We connected on Instagram! XLT Clothing found us and liked our Fall 2014 shoot.

 

XLT: Where are you located?

Jenni: TEAL Apparel is 100% bootstrapped and funded by my husband and me. We believe passionately about making premium clothes available for men 6’ and taller. We understand the underserved market because we are it. TEAL’s operations and fulfillment are run out of the spare bedroom in our home in Newton, Massachusetts.

 

XLT: Do you have a slogan/motto?

Jenni: We do! It’s Live Tall. And Extra Long.

 

XLT: What’s your website address, FB, Twitter, IG and any other points of contact?

Jenni: Shop and learn more about TEAL at: http://tealapparel.com.

 

Email me directly! I’d love to connect with more wives who shop for their husbands and family, send your questions, feedback about the product or to tell me what we should produce next. I want to hear from you! jenni@tealapparel.com

Letter from the Founder

December 17th, 2014

A conversation with longtime fan and TEAL Customer, Mike, sparked this blog post.

MIKE MEDIUM

(Above: Mike and his daughter on a hike)

After his recent purchase of our All American chinos, Mike and I had a phone conversation. He revealed that he was so happy to have “figured out pants”. Knowing exactly where he could go to purchase chinos that fit, taking the guesswork out of size and quality, was a relief.  My response was that now he could apply the energy, that he used to reserve for finding clothes, to go out and live his life. This led our conversation to Mark Zuckerberg and his grey t-shirts. 

zuckerberg grey t shirt

At a Facebook Town Hall Meeting, Zuckerberg answered a question about his limited wardrobe by claiming that he simply lacks the time and energy to pick a new outfit every day. “I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve the community,” he said.

What I really like about Zuckerberg’s thinking is his formulaic approach to dressing.  Wearing one type of clothing (for Mark it’s a grey t-shirt, for the tall guy it’s a TEAL chino) you can “rip and reapply” every day. Removing the unnecessary guess work and energy to dress frees up time to use somewhere else!

If you recall, I blogged about trying to find a winter coat for my husband. It was a multi-day, several step process that involved driving across state borders, shopping in stores and online and waiting for days. (read the post: http://tealapparel.com/tall-adventure-married-to-the-teal-man/)

shopping adventure

I understand what it’s like to crack the code in tall menswear department, the emotions range from genuine excitement to relief. My goal is for TEAL Apparel to help tall men and their loved ones find pants that fit, enabling them to solve a clothing problem, feel incredible about how they look and free up time to play the game of life.

Happy Holidays and here’s to cracking the code!

Jenni

Found: Mr. Clutch

November 26th, 2014


Mr. Clutch: Charlie Clapp


 

Charlie.for.FB small

In the final throes of our Fall 2014 photo shoot preparation we had the slim fit chinos, but no model. Fortuitously, the Head of the Charles Regatta was taking place and I took my family to take in the elaborate festivities and get a glimpse of the reigning National Champions, the University of Washington Men’s 8. While at the UW Alumni tent I was introduced to Charlie by his Father Charlie (Rower and Silver Medalist in the 1984 Olympics), after asking if he knew of any guys who’d fit the bill of a slim fit model. Since rowing and athleticism are in the Clapp blood I took one look at Charlie and knew immediately we had found our slim fit guy. He was sold on being the “global face” of TEAL and willing to help a brand that he could relate with. 

 


Charlie Clutch Stats:

 

  • 6’3″, 165 lbs.
  • 2014 Graduate of University of Wisconsin at Madison
  • Medalist at 2012, 2013, 2014 IRA National Championships
  • Uber athlete – ski, golf, sail, play tennis, bike and take the boat to the beach with friends.
  • Tall Challenge: I feel like every time I go into a store it is difficult to find my size in stock. Finding pants for my slim waist and long legs are hard to come by. This can be frustrating and TEAL Apparel offers the perfect solution.

 

Charlie –

You are the man. Thanks so much for helping us out! We couldn’t have done it without you.

Press: The Height of Style

July 8th, 2014

Thank you to The Height of Style. We are flattered by your blog post and support. Read the full post (1st of 2) below:

 

Tall Designer Q&A: Jenni Lallier of TEAL Apparel

 

THOS 1

Here at The Height of Style, Ted and I have shared the exceptional pleasure of connecting with Jenni and Ed Lallier of local brand TEAL Apparel, purveyor of premium, made-in-the-U.S. chinos for long and tall men. Founded in 2010 on the west coast (spurred by 6’7″ Ed’s inability to find a pair of non-custom twills on a family vacation in Las Vegas) and since brought east, the Lalliers I first connected over a year ago because of a shared interest in tall men’s style—I have been happily following their upward growth (no pun intended) and evolution ever since.  2014 is shaping up to be a banner year for TEAL—Jenni and Ed recently debuted an expanded spectrum of Italian twill dress chinos in their traditional and slim fits, and are planning to launch a new “All-American” line, complete with their hallmark emphasis on quality, local manufacturing, and impeccable fit at an affordable price point. We’ve been talking tall men’s apparel challenges, successes, and what makes TEAL exceptionally special for this demographic for a while now, so I couldn’t be more delighted to launch the tall men’s stream by sharing an exclusive interview with Jenni and Ed to celebrate our relaunch (plus Ted’s first, much anticipated review of the traditional fit going live next week).

Without further ado, here’s the full story of TEAL Apparel—the brand specifically for the long, tall guy.

THOS 2

  1. tHoS: Tell us the story behind why you started TEAL…

JL: TEAL was born out of necessity. I couldn’t find clothes for my 6’7″ tall husband, particularly pants that fit well and were made with better fabric. So I solved the problem by launching TEAL, a brand that specifically targets long and tall men, with a slim fit chino. I have a deep personal interest in seeing this line fully realized because I need to dress my husband, my brother in law, my father in law and eventually my son.

  1. tHoS: After doing market research, what challenges did you find that long and tall men were facing in the apparel marketplace?

JL: Prior to launching in 2011, I did research to understand the market and found out why long and tall clothing was so difficult to find. Per the CDC, men 6’0″ and taller make up 20% (31MM men) of the total market where as big/obese market is 33% (51MM men). It makes perfect business sense for companies to target and make clothes for the big market because it’s more profitable. The long and tall men’s market is niche, but it still needs attention.

I also did competitive analysis to understand what existed in stores and online. The results were dismal and not surprising given the extreme difficulty shopping for my husband. A few years ago there were practically no brands selling to the long and tall man. Now, there are a handful of e-tailers that make clothes for this market but they generally sell one category such as dress shirts, or t-shirts, or sweatshirts or jeans. There is still no brand that delivers an affordable, premium option except TEAL.

  1. tHoS: How would you describe where you fit in among apparel brands?

JL: The  TEAL collection is made up of essential closet staples that long and tall men need for work and play. My goal is to create affordable premium pieces that are well made using quality fabrics—and provide great fit.

  1. tHoS: Why pants, as opposed to shirts? Or shirts and pants?

JL: To quote my husband “You can roll up sleeves that are too short, but you can’t hide floods.” I launched with pants because they are the most difficult piece of clothing to “fake” and they are essential—you wear them 7 days a week.

My goal is to create exceptional pieces that are designed specifically for long and tall proportions. We widened the pocket openings to accommodate larger hands, deepened the pocket bags so that items wouldn’t fall out of them when you sit, adjusted the knee opening for longer legs and left every chino’s inseam unfinished at 40” so that it can be hemmed to the perfect length. Each pattern and sample has gone through countless iterations in order to achieve the perfect fit. I collaborate with a highly experienced designer in Manhattan, who also develops menswear for the men’s Marc by Marc Jacobs line. Our creative process is a blend of my directives, based on firsthand tall men’s input, and their design expertise.

I am not interested in rushing through the design and production process just to put out an entire collection. I’d rather develop exceptional products with great care and grow the brand organically—one piece at a time.

  1. tHoS: I love the idea of slow, thoughtful growth. It makes a lot of sense. So tell us about your sourcing, design, and manufacturing processes.

 JL: We source, design and manufacture ourselves, which allows control over the entire process. My only sourcing criteria is quality. I scoured the globe to find the most incredible cotton twills for the Italian Cotton Twill chinos; gorgeous, real horn buttons and colorful, sturdy zippers. Everything is imported to the USA where it is eventually cut and sewn in Everett, Massachusetts.

  1. tHoS: That is just awesome—support local businesses, tall guys! Would you mind sharing a few details with our readers as to the upcoming line launch?

JL: Sure, we are in pre-production with a new line called the ‘All American’ line. Think of it as the more affordable option with the same incredible fit and good quality. The entire All American line is also cut and sewn in the USA.

What I found was that TEAL really resonated with tall men and their loved ones, but when they went to purchase online, the price was too high. Given this economy and the nature of online shopping, everyone is looking for a deal. I developed this parity-priced line as an option for working families and men just starting out to still have access to great-fitting chinos and shorts. Beyond the All American line, we are developing Italian Cotton Twill Shorts and Shirts for work and play that will all debut later this year.

Eventually I see TEAL growing beyond a fashion brand and into lifestyle. I’d like to improve everything long and tall men interact with including: furniture, transportation, grooming & lifestyle products. Someday, I can see a TEAL women’s line as well.

  1. HoS: That’s super exciting to hear about plans to expand into women’s and lifestyle! So what has surprised you most about tall men as customers?

JL: Everything! It’s been fascinating to dive into this subset of the population and understand the struggles that result from their unique stature to their shopping behaviors. One customer told me that when he goes to the store, he doesn’t sift through the rack by the hangers, he looks at the rack from far away to see which pant hangs down the farthest and starts from there. I remember being struck by his strategic shopping method!

I am also constantly surprised by the knowledge, gripes, and comments that every tall man has about shopping and clothes. My general sense about men and shopping/clothes, prior to launching TEAL, was slight indifference. But if you ask any long and tall man or his loved ones about the topic, they will run on for days, asking for tips or brands that you’ve found, sharing where they shop, or what challenges them the most. Tall men also go to great lengths (pun intended), and some questionable decisions in pursuit of that perfect pant. My husband and I have created our own monikers for these:

  • Frankensteining/Sew-on-Extensions: Sewing extra fabric on to the hem of pants.
  • Plumber’s Butt: Wearing pants low around their hips to make up for the short length.
  • Fat pants/Rapper Pants: Tailoring the waist, of really big pants, in by taking it from the back waistband. The result is pants that have really close rear pockets.

The irony is that height is the attribute many men would like to have, yet for those who have it, it isn’t always seen as a benefit. The most resonating feedback that I’ve heard is the lack of confidence, awkwardness, sadness and capitulation that tall men feel. If finding clothes that fit can help a man embrace his tall self then TEAL has succeeded! Our motto is to: Live tall. And extra long.

  1. tHoS: What is the most inspiring feedback you’ve received from a customer in your first year of business?

 JL: Our customers are always impressed by the hand (the feel of the fabric), color, construction, and overall luxuriousness of our chinos. These qualities are difficult to experience online. One of our customers, a husband, father and former Olympic rower, said that TEAL chinos were his first pair of real pants!

  1. tHoS: I love that—I imagine the idea of your “first pair of pants” is one a lot of tall, long guys can relate to! So now for the million dollar question— part 1: Ed, how do you wear your TEAL chinos? Part 2: Jenni, what are your top three tips for tall men styling TEAL chinos up for business, slightly down for business casual, and also for the weekend?

EL: When I am dodging crotch shots with my fellow commuters during the workweek, I love to wear my salmon Facconable long sleeve shirt with TEAL Aegean Blue Italian Twill Chinos, a mahogany Coach dress belt, chestnut brown Allen Edmond dress shoes, and pink and blue printed socks from Happy Socks.

JL: For work, TEAL Onyx Italian Cotton Twill Chinos with a black belt, light grey blazer, purple tie/neck tie, white button down shirt and a black dress shoe. For Casual Fridays, TEAL Nantucket All American Chinos with a belt, blue oxford button down, v-neck sweater and white suede bucks. And for play, TEAL Chinos with no belt, t-shirt slightly tucked in, rolled hem and boat shoes or Reef slippers.

Thank you, Jenni and Ed, for your awesome efforts in the name of outfitting long and tall men everywhere in premium chinos that offer an exceptional fit. And all you tall guys out there: get over to TEAL Apparel’s website  and pick up the pants that may just be the first “real” pair of your life. They’re worth it. We promise.

Kacy
